New Ways to Stay Fit

News

Washington residents will soon have a new way to stay fit.

Six new exercise stations are being added to Longfellow Park. Each station has two pieces of equipment for a total of twelve different activities. The stations will include various cardio and core exercises. 

The money for the new equipment came from a share of the city’s cigarette tax.

“Cities get a cigarette tax that comes from when you buy a pack of cigarettes and we get that and the Mayor kind of was looking to put that back in the community into a healthier place”, Kip Kelley, Parks Superintendent of Washington.

The Washington Parks Department hopes to have the exercise finished done by the end of Friday.
